Potential protective effects of melatonin against UV-A irradiation on fibroblast cell line

Giovanni Damiani, Michele Peroni, Antonia Infranco & Francesca Bonomini
The sun’s radiation that reaches Earth contains ultraviolet (UV) wavelights made up of a combination of UV-A (95%) and UV-B (5%) radiations. Chronic sun exposure is responsible for long term clinical skin changes such as photoaging, photodamage and photocancers. Moreover, inflammation is mostly due to UV-A which stimulates the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) inducing also photoaging (Mouchet et al., 2010; Marionnet et al., 2010). In order to protect themselves against oxidative stress, skin...
